VITIS-premio-Challenger-Award-Holanda

VITIS gingival has received the Challenger Award in the Netherlands, one of the most prestigious honours of the Dutch pharmacy channel.

This award is given to companies that have shown remarkable growth with innovative products that strengthen a category, in this case the award-winning range was VITIS gingival.

The contest’s panel of judges chose VITIS gingival unanimously as the winner, for its complete formula to improve the health of teeth and gums. The concept of the product was considered particularly interesting as it builds a bridge between the dental practice and the pharmacist. The recommendation that comes from the dental clinic helps to stimulate sales and, this way, VITIS gingival adds value to the oral health category and to the role of the pharmacist as a health professional.

The award was presented by Jan-Derek Groenendaal, CEO of ETOS, a major health and beauty wholesaler and renowned pharmacy chain in the Netherlands.

This award is the result of the significant growth and innovation of DENTAID in the Netherlands, which reflects the company’s international commitment, reaching more than 70 countries around the world.

New VITIS® children’s product range for the protection and care of our little ones during their different stages of growth

VITIS_infantil

VITIS, whose aim is to offer personalised solutions for the proper oral hygiene of everyone’s mouth, is now concentrating on the mouths of the littlest of the household, offering VITIS® baby, VITIS® kids and VITIS® junior to satisfy children’s oral needs, while helping to instil good daily hygiene habits.

The care of baby teeth and later of permanent teeth is paramount for the proper oral development of our youth. “If we focus on the oral requirements of children during their growth, it will be easier to maintain good health and hygiene and therefore avoid cavities and other diseases later in life”, explains Dr Xavier Calvo, Periodontist, DDS and Medical Advisor at DENTAID.

 

From 0 to 2 years: VITIS® baby and tooth eruption

The tooth eruption process usually occurs between 6 months and 2 years of age, but even before this phase, it is important to start a daily oral hygiene routine, by cleaning the gums with a moist piece of gauze or a silicone thimble, after each feeding.

With the eruption of the first teeth, inflammation of the gums, discomfort and crying begins. That’s why the VITIS® baby gel ointment for gums is the perfect ally for this difficult stage, thanks to its soothing action. It does not contain aromas, sugars, added dairy, gluten, fluoride or colourants. Low abrasivity: gentle on tooth enamel.

The VITIS® baby toothbrush is perfect for starting a daily cleaning routine from the eruption of your baby’s first teeth. It is designed to fit a child’s mouth and for easy handling by an adult, and is gentle on a baby’s delicate gums and teeth, thanks to its ultra-soft, high quality Tynex® filaments.

From 2 to 6 years: VITIS® kids and the care of baby teeth

The main objectives in this stage include establishing a daily habit of cleaning baby teeth, removing dental biofilm (bacterial plaque), and getting little ones to acquire the responsibility of taking care of their own mouths, although this still has to be supervised by an adult.

The VITIS® kids toothbrush is specially designed to be easily handled by a child, thanks to its ergonomic handle that fits their hand and its very small head which is suitable for the size of their mouth and an indicator of the amount of gel that the child should use. Soft, high quality Tynex® filaments effectively clean while gentle on teeth and gums.

VITIS® kids cherry-flavoured dental gel is formulated specifically to prevent tooth decay in children as of 2 years, thanks to its age-specific fluoride concentration of 1,000 ppm, complying with SEOP and EAPD recommendations.

From 6 to 12 years: VITIS® junior and the emergence of permanent teeth

The VITIS® junior toothbrush is designed to make brushing easier for children starting at age 6, thanks to its ergonomic handle and head size adapted to children at this stage. The soft Tynex® filaments leave their mouths clean and are adapted to their needs. And the protective cap helps to keep the brush in the best conditions.

VITIS® junior tutti-frutti flavoured dental gel has been specially formulated to prevent the onset of caries, with a fluoride concentration adapted to this stage of growth (1,450 ppm of fluoride). In addition, its panthenol content helps care for and protect their gums.

At this stage, a child usually controls the swallowing reflex and this will allow VITIS® junior mouthwash to be used as part of their daily oral hygiene routine, to complement the care of their mouth with an anticaries action and a gum care actio

Journalists and bloggers discover the new VITIS sonic electric brushes

imgThe sonic technology of the VITIS sonic brushes was the focus at the VITIS presentation to the media of their latest launch. Over 55 journalists and bloggers were able to see the new VITIS sonic first hand during a press conference held in Madrid.

VITIS Product Manager Marta de Múller and DENTAID’s Medical Advisor Xavier Calvo highlighted the main features of the new electric brushes as well as the benefits they contribute to daily oral hygiene.

All about the VITIS sonic

DENTAID presents VITIS sonic S10 and S20, two electric brushes that achieve the maximum effectiveness in the removal of bacterial plaque, thanks to their dual-action sonic technology and to the exclusive design of their heads, which protect teeth and gums. Sonic brushing adds a fluid dynamics action to the conventional mechanical cleaning action, helping to break up bacterial colonies and, in turn, inhibiting their growth and development.

VITIS sonic has a small, diamond-shaped head which allows it to reach areas of difficult access and to avoid injury thanks to its rounded end. Its high-quality Tynex® filaments coupled with the hydrodynamic action of sonic technology manage to reach the most complicated and hidden areas of the mouth, such as the interproximal regions and gingival margin. Likewise, lateral vibration of the filaments is carried out at a speed of between 31,000 and 40,000 movements per minute, which besides its mechanical action, manages to exert a hydrodynamic action which optimizes the removal of biofilm throughout the oral cavity.

  • Mechanical Action: The filaments vibrate at a high frequency (sonic vibration) on the surface of the tooth, thereby achieving effective removal of the oral biofilm, or bacterial plaque.
  • Hydrodynamic action: The high speed at which the filaments vibrate generates acoustic waves that produce tiny air bubbles that propagate through the saliva throughout the oral cavity, obtaining greater disruption of the oral biofilm. These oxygen-rich bubbles reach the subgingival areas and difficult to reach spaces, such as those between the teeth or below the gum line. These subgingival areas are where anaerobic bacteria dwell; their growth is inhibited when they come into contact with the oxygen bubbles formed by the movement of the brush.

The brush’s protective cap protects filaments from external contact while allowing air to flow through its perforations for fast drying.

Plus, thanks to its long-lasting battery (which has a run time of over one month), and to its comfortable grip (with anti-slip grooves), VITIS sonic is a practical and functional brush that covers all oral needs.

Sonic technology and its unique head are the main features that distinguish VITIS sonic from other electric brushes. The majority of electric brushes that are currently on the market base their cleaning mechanism on rotational technology which completes mechanical movements at a speed of 5,600 to 8,800 oscillations per minute, compared to the 40,000 achieved by VITIS sonic.

Perfect brushing with sonic technology.

Oral health can have an impact on overall health, so it is necessary to be aware of just how important daily oral hygiene is. It is essential that the toothbrush used allows us to maintain a correct level of cleaning and facilitate this task.

Thanks to its diamond-shaped head and sonic technology, VITIS sonic helps improve the outcomes of traditional brushing without the need for varying techniques while improving interdental hygiene. In addition, it helps with compliance of recommended brushing time thanks to its quadrant timer. Every 30 seconds the brush signals when it’s time to move on to the next quadrant by pausing briefly, to ensure fulfilment of recommended brushing time.

“Brushing should be performed for a minimum of 2 minutes, although some people need to spend more time, as is the case of periodontal patients. All you have to do is press the power button again and continue cleaning”, says Dr. Xavier Calvo, Periodontist, Dentist and Medical Advisor at DENTAID. “For those with special needs, VITIS sonic offers extra comfort and enhanced brushing effectiveness” the Doctor points out.
